Don’t let fear cut off your joy with Joe Ryan, certified Peer Counselor and podcast host

“There’s a reservoir of joy and happiness within us. It is just buried under fear, and defenses, and programming, and poor modeling,” says Joe Ryan, a certified Peer Counselor and host of the podcast “It’s not you, it’s your trauma”, a trauma, PTSD, abuse, anxiety, and recovery podcast. Joe brings his unique style of frank talk to his explanation of how a traumatic childhood can leave us unable to experience the joy that makes life worth living because we are locked in a place of shame and fear. Joe talks from experience and says, “Self-hate was my first language.” But he says, with self-exploration, we can understand ourselves and our trauma to make space and safety to feel more joy every day.
